Summer time is officially here! It’s time for some fun, sun, and easy weeknight meals. Our summer days are usually filled with day trips, time spent with friends, and lot’s of time hanging outside in the sunshine. Which means by the time we get home for the night, I am NOT in the mood to make a complicated meal for dinner. But I’m also not one to eat out a lot or eat things from a box. Luckily there are so many meals you can make in no time at all that are still yummy and homemade. One of my kids favorite meals is my Buffalo chicken sloppy joes! These tasty little (and sometimes messy) sandwiches only take about 1/2 an hour to make and are full of flavor. Let’s check out how to make them shall we?Continue reading
These are so quick to whip up! I love to double this recipe and freeze one set so when we are really strapped on time I can pop them out of the freezer heat them up and enjoy! I do the same with my Marinara recipe.
These are the Best Meatballs Ever! My family enjoys them on pasta or you can grab some sub rolls and have a tasty sandwich!
To make the best meatballs ever here is what you will need!Continue reading
I love to cook in bulk. I mean who doesn’t. It is one mess and a lot of work already done. I love to make waffles on Sunday. They smell yummy. I hate to open the box and not use the whole thing at one time. I decided I we need a waffle remake. I have so many Waffle Recipe Ideas to share with you.Continue reading
Lo Mein is the ultimate leftover makeover. You can use your family’s favorite meat and veggies to make this quick, one skillet meal. I typically use pork or chicken and the combination of vegetables varies throughout the year in my Lo Mein Recipe. In the spring and summer, use fresh cabbage, zucchini, yellow squash, green pepper, and in the winter, use frozen mixed veggies of corn, carrots, beans, and peas. Lo mein is a year-round favorite that you can vary to suit your family’s tastes. Use leftover pork roast or chops or chop up the roasted or rotisserie chicken you served the night before. Steamed shrimp is delicious in Lo Mein, too.Continue reading
Thanks Connie for the recipe. This easy Shepherd’s Pie Recipe Using Leftover Mashed Potatoes is a meal your whole family will enjoy and appreciate left overs!
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and so we were all a little bit Irish. I hope you wore green so you didn’t get pinched, ate a serving of corned beef & cabbage with a side of Irish soda bread, and said “Blarney” at least once! I recently discovered that my husband is of Irish descent, so we’ve begun to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day each year with a special supper and treats from a leprechaun. This year, I made an Irish dish that we actually enjoy year-round. This easy Shepherd’s Pie recipe is a tasty dish that makes the perfect Leftover Makeover. I often make smashed or mashed potatoes and have about 2 cups leftover. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think potatoes are as good when reheated, so I’ll turn leftover mashed potatoes into a topping for Shepherd’s Pie. With just a few added ingredients, last night’s potatoes turn into a garlicky, cheesy, creamy topping for this hearty casserole. Continue reading
For many families, ground beef is a favorite. It’s quick to prepare, quite versatile, and can be inexpensive. For the most part, ground beef is a kid-friendly meat that can be the center of many classic meals: cheeseburgers, spaghetti & meat sauce, tacos, just to name a few.
Salisbury Steak is an oldie-but-goody, ground beef dish that is making a comeback. This dish was created during the 1930’s when home cooks wanted a new and tasty way to cook ground beef. Steak was too expensive for Depression-era families, so the well-seasoned Salisbury Steak was born. Now, some of you may be thinking of the Salisbury Steak frozen dinners that come in a sectioned, tin tray alongside mashed potatoes, peas, and fried apples. While this “t.v. dinner” used to be my favorite meal when the babysitter came over and my parents went out for the evening, I have a much more wholesome Salisbury Steak recipe to share with you.Continue reading
